April Goals!

I can't believe we're here already. March? Where'd you go?! I am excited for April, not gonna lie. I'm excited for sunnier days, warmer weather, washing on the line and lighter nights. But before I get too wrapped up in the wonders of April, I want to cast back over March and check in on my March goals. Let's see how I got on with them, shall we?

March Reading Wrap-Up//April TBR

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? The good news? I'm slowly overcoming my reading OCD. And I did actually manage to read a few books in March. The bad news? I'm still not fully over my reading OCD. And I only managed to read a few books in March. Which means I'm still way behind on my GoodReads reading challenge. But I have faith that I'll get there in the end! Here's a quick look at what I read in March, and what's on my TBR pile for April.

World Book Day used to be the highlight of my year as a child. Now I'm an adult, I've always thought I was too old for it. But you know what? I'm not. Admittedly, the majority of the books are aimed at younger readers. But there are a few YA books, too. Like Malorie Blackman's Nought Forever(***) and Patrick Lawrence's Snap(****). I'm super excited for next year's World Book Day now, too!

Life Lately: March Edition!

April, huh? I honestly don't know how I'd open these blog posts every month if I couldn't talk about how fast this year was going... ... ... Nope, can't do it. How fast is this year going?! We're a third of the way through the year already, and I am not okay with that. But before we dive on into the April blog posts, let's take a quick look at what I got up to in March.

March Favourites!

How are we a third of the way through 2019 already? I'm pretty sure my life is on fast forward. March seemed to pass in the blink of an eye, and now here we are, in April! I've been taking quite a few breaks from my blog this year - at least three weeks over the last three months. My mental health isn't great, to be honest. Nor is my physical health. And some weeks I just do not have the energy to think about blog posts, let alone write and publish one. I like to make sure I get my regular posts published every month though, as I like to look back on them at the end of the year and see what I got up to every month! So today I'm sharing a few of my favourite things from March, and forgetting the fact that we're well into April already...

Love Your Mum This Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

Now I want to start this post by sending all my love and positive thoughts to those struggling with loss this Mother's Day. And also to those with absent mums, neglectful mums, sick mums etc. I know Mother's Day can be a struggle for some, but I also know it's all too easy to take our mums for granted. We accept their presence, and it never really occurs to us until it's too late that they won't always be there. So here's five reasons why you should tell your mum you love her today. Especially today, it being Mother's Day and all.

Dream Big, Little One

Dreams. We all have them. And I'm not just talking about the deep sleep kind. I'm talking about the things we'd absolutely love to do in life if money/family/geography/etc was no obstacle. We can't always realise our dreams, for various reasons, but I think it's so important to keep those dreams alive. Because without dreams, what is there to hope for? And without hope, what is life? These are just a few of my dreams...

Haul Post!

Oh yes, it's time for another haul post. I do seem to be making something of a dent in my haul photos now though. So hopefully, after one or two more posts, I'll be back to just a monthly haul post. Rather than an almost weekly haul post! Anyway, here's what I've been buying recently (and by recently, these photos date back to December/January!)
